graduationicecream-2010

School’s out ice cream, Albany, CA.

Last year, when the girlie graduated preschool, we came here for a scoop. The place never loses its allure. Or invests in other than Wal-Mart plastic lawn chairs. Or scrubs behind the counter. Or updates the vintage 1980s arcade video games (two of ’em, which I suspect draws at least 50% of the customers, who trickle in at a rate of one or two per hour, tops).

Much to say about the transcendent first year of elementary school, hopefully also the heaven-sent Kindergarten teacher who reached out her hand and guided our girl through it. But this is BABA’S DAY in our family! So I must off to being fêted (and, at the end of the day, to fêing me Pops).

Here’s a link to my timeless BABA’S DAY PROCLAMATION to catch up you newcomers.  To one and all: may the love flow in every direction, today as every day.

    I came home from church and read all your Baba’s Day posts. Thank you sooooo much. Soon and very soon I am going to live on my own and not have to attend church any more … but till then…. The sermon was all about how every child needs a man in their life and how we understand God better as a Father than anything else. I was getting annoyed throughout because sermons and expectations like this make it that much easier for most folks to think that lesbians can’t raise healthy kids. So I blogged about it and stuck part of your Baba’s Day proclamation up on my blog. You have way more readers than me, but maybe it will get it out there a little bit more.

    I’m so tired of gender binaries and fixed points of understanding. I love the way that you live your life and share a bit of it, which communicates so very much about the many different complex possibilities open in the world.
